Sailing Clinics

End of Summer ILCA / Laser Clinic

September 3, 2023 (10am report – 4pm)

Old Dominion University Sailing Center

Clinic Fee $75.00, All ages 14+

This BYOB, on-the-water, racing clinic is targeting the experienced and advanced ILCA 6 or 7 (Laser standard or radial) sailor who wants to extend the summer season and get the most out of their sailing. Topics will include performance boat setup and rigging, optimal sail trim, boat handling, upwind and downwind technique, and race strategy. We will have a briefing in the classroom, launch for a progressive set of drills, followed by some races, and finish with a video debriefing in the classroom.

Sailors should bring their own lunch and water bottle.

Limited charters may be available for $40.00per day.

All participants are expected to have the skills and ability to safely operate a Laser sailboat (standard or radial rig) in the normally expected weather conditions with minimal assistance.

The clinic director and coach will be Mitch Brindley. Mitch is the Head Sailing Coach for Old Dominion University.
